The dreaded time has come once more when my compulsive GD-listening has rendored my musical receptors numb. You know what they say about too much of mindblowingly fantastic thing... anyways, i need a dead break, and in the meantime i need u experts to tell me what bands and shows to download from this amazing source (if it helps, my favorite non-dead acts: rairoad earth, david grisman quintet, phish, sci, umps, keller, kottke etc) any suggestions are graciously welcomed.

seriously, try the hard-core '60s. and yeah, the era over spills into the '70s and even now.

Start here.

I'm a scholar of this stuff, and also have to take a break from the primal GD once in a while!

I'll always be up for recommending the Cramper family of bands- Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven, Monks Of Doom, Death Of Me, and individual Camper bandmembers Jonathan Segel, Greg Lisher, Victor Krummenacher, and David Lowery! Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers are a fun time too, with plenty of nice shows here.
Bluegrass-wise, try some Hackensaw Boys and Trampled by Turtles, and otherwise, check out Calexico and Howe Gelb if your ears are open to some random goodness!

lauzon is cool, bradm, and nice work taping... sorta keller/kottke -esque. sometimes the amount of amazing stuff on the archive is overwhelming. a lot of heads i know really dig bisco. i saw them at 10klf and enjoyed it, but was a bit out of my brain and since then havent found a recording that i can get really into... suggestions?

Try some David Lauzon

He is/was the guitar player in nero

http://www.archive.org/details/nero

which is also worth checking out, but from the other artists you mentioned, his solo stuff might be closer to what you're into. He plays acoustic guitar (and small synth), relies heavily on looping and effects, and often will lay down a percussive line by banging on the body of the guitar, looping it, and using that as a rhythmic line, with other stuff played and looped on top of it. (The music is all instrumental, though, if that matters.)

A good one-CD show by him is

while the most recent upload for him

http://www.archive.org/details/dlauzon2007-10-26.oktava.shnf

is two CDs of stretch-it-out-ness, and gets more heavily into the techno/electroica end of things.

Aloha,
Brad

You might try some brushfire stankgrass. Acoustic tunes with Bob Moog effects and a killer drummer. Here's the link to their collection page.

Enjoy!
